What a rip off bunch of con artists.
I paid for a 48 hr subscription and have also been charged $34.95 per month for the last 3 months. Now i have to go through the process of cancelling my Bankcard and having a new one reissued. SHAME...SHAME...SHAME
What a way to steal money "Professionally" I give a 5 stars on that....
I used this site to create a letter and I deleted my account right after. and no even a two weeks later I've been charged $35 because the automatic renewal ...I don't recommend the site. I give a 1 star because there's not 0 star.
Suggestion: Life is one.....live it honestly.
I also signed for the 7 day subscription and just realized I was being charged $35 a month. The rep told me that it was in the fine print that we would automatically be signed up for a monthly subscription if we didn't cancel. Why is it called a 7 day subscription if I have to call and cancel it after 7 days!? Obviously several others have had this problem as well and hopefully are getting their money refunded. Why doesn't this company stop doing this and actually give people what they think they are signup for and save themselves the bad reputation and the hassle of having to make all the refunds... they're going to have to give the money back either way, no point in tricking people. - Tara
What the actual $#*! though? I went on this site for the 7 day subscription too under the impression that it was a one time charge, when I looked on my statement they charged me $34.95....TWICE. I don't appreciate being tricked like that. My bank is disputing the first charge since it's already posted and now I'm in the process of trying to get a refund for the second charge....
DON'T USE THIS WEBSITE!!! Just like everyone else says, they're a major scam.....there's definitely better websites out there.
I would actually rate this 0 stars if I could!! This company basically scams people into thinking they are only paying $3 for a 7 day period because that is the part that is in huge print and then in tiny print that probably no one sees it says they will bill you $35 a month if you don't cancel!! So I didn't see this part and I got no other notifications and then I saw this taken out of my bank account. I mean come on!!?? Okay yeah I can see a monthly payment for this site, like maybe $3 a month! It is only a template site, for $35 a month??!! And not making it upfront and clear for people to read?! I don't even pay that much for my gym membership! These people should be ashamed for misleading so many people and it is most likely people who don't have a lot of money because if they are creating a resume it means you are looking for a job and need money! Shame on you people!
Really professional looking website and serve the purpose when I need a resume. The overall design looks fine as well.
I fully understood about the recurring charge of $34.95 and figured once I got a job, I would cancel the subscription. Well, of course I forgot and just happened to check my bank account via online one day and saw the $34.95 charge, by coincidence, that same day. What a stroke of luck to catch the charge on the same day it occured! I immediately emailed to cancel and guess what? Between the time I emailed to cancel and the time I got a response from livecareer a few hours later, they billed my card again!! Two (2) charges of $34.95 in the same day!! I immediately called my financial institution and they immediately cancelled my card. DO NOT USE THIS RESUME SERVICE!!! There are several others out there that are honest and trustworthy AND utilize professional business practices.
Do NOT use this site!!!!!!! I paid to download the resume and a month later they were taking money from my account.....it is a good thing I caught it because it is a monthly payment.......this site is a huge SCAM!!!!!!!!!
I used this site to build a resume for a job I was applying for. Signed up for the week membership. I got the job and didn't think about my resume again. Looking over my credit card statement I realized that I was being billed 34.95 a month. I may have missed something in the fine print, but I was honestly unaware that they would be billing me this amount monthly until I cancelled. I really hate when companies do this kind of stuff and don't make it absolutely clear what you are signing up for. Would not use this site. There are plenty of FREE resources out there to help with resume building and job hunting.
a one week subscription was cool but a 26.00$ and 35.00$ charge was not authorized no integrity i had to cancel my card to stop the vultures from continuing to drain my account
VERY PROFESSIONAL LOOKING AND ALSO VERY EASY TO USE I LOVE THIS AND WILL BE REFERING EVERYONE I KNOW.
I used your website to write up my resume which I was quite happy with and cancelled my membership afterwards. I was then surprised to see that 2 weeks later, you had charged my credit card approximately $33.
Upon emailing you, I did not get a reply and to be honest am getting quite annoyed and exasperated as I thought I had cancelled this subscription and yet when I question this, no one replied.
JUST SAY NO!!!!!
Just like so many others I was happy with my resume, but forgot about the auto bill. Once I saw it on my bank statement I sent them an email to cancel my subscription but noooo, they kept right on billing. This company is a ripoff!!!!
The site was very informative, full of examples/ options and easy to use.
its really helpful to create a such good and professional resume. i like to do it and now my resume looks like a professional
Suckesr you in with a nice enough UI, decent experience overall. Extremely buggy resume editing leads to a lot of frustration, but overall it would be very worthwhile as there's a lot of features... except they're GREEDY.
I would be highly inclined to pay for their services if I, a little down the road, wanted to expand on my resume in detail, as I'm sure this would make it easy to alter the layout and feel tailored to individual opportunities. But even just using basic features they want you to pay for the right to print or download. You're going to MAKE me subscribe just to download the file I created on my own, before I can even be sure I'm satisfied with the outcome? Ridiculous. There is absolutely ZERO effective way to use the end product without paying them money, something they would NEVER let you in on before you start. Why you will not allow me even basic use of the end product before I get scammed like others with a sneaky monthly charge
Thanks for wasting my time on a buggy, and in the end, useless product.
This made building my resume so easy without having to fuss with formatting! Yes please and thank you! =)
Thanks for the incredible amount of help you guys provided!! My resume looks great!!
It's OK. if you never made your own resume. But employers have seen it all before and with the economy the way it is are looking for energetic employees with minds and talents of their own.
I'd like to know out of all the people who love this site and used it, what % actually got hired and for how long.
It was very helpful with step by step instructions
Total scam to the fullest!!! Resume is terrible would not print or email and if you view my chat with the rep on 12/27/2011, you will clearly see that the rep said the difficulties were on your end and I would not be charged again. In addition, she stated she would cancel the service right then and there. Not only was that not true, but got me for $34.95 dollars more TOTAL CRAP AT ITS FINEST LEVEL. Trust me when I say I WILL DISPUTE AND GET MY MONEY BACK!!!!
I thought that the resume wasn't formatted correctly and just had to use microsoft word instead. This is totally a scam because you would think that this website would be better than the word verision but it was not and this pisses me off becuse i paid for this and it was terrible.I would not recomend this website to anyone and i was told you only had to pay 4.95 for the subscription and i ended up paying another 34.95 on top of that i just want to cancle my subscription and never worry about this again. so can some one please help me?
Live Career Resume Builder totally sucks & is a complete rip off!! The formatting is crap & is not user friendly what so ever! This company has to know what they are doing, offering week subscription then failing to really let you know that it will renew on the 7th day to $34.95, of course I do not regularly check my emails so once I did check my emails there the notice was with my order confirmation but their website made me think I was only paying for a week!! They will only refund $18.95 which I have yet to see!! This is a huge SCAM! You'd be better off creating your own resume! Not to mention once you download you can't make any changes to your resume that you paid for without using their site! What a piece of crap!! No way is this Americas #1 Resume Builder!! Oh well right, another scammer tricking people & stealing their money!!
When you guys paid, did it say Card not authorized?
I've entered my card information and it keeps telling me that there is a cvv2 failure. I've used my card as well as my husbands. It won't authorize either of our cards. I checked our cards and so far in the last 15 mins nothing has been charged. Now I'm worried...
Total scam I had to change my credit card number to get the 34.95 to stop what a rip off.Resumes are to help you find employment why would they have a recurring cost they never said anything
